:00 on the east coast. residents have flooded into the streets to applaud, to say thank you to law enforcement. to the massive law enforcement presence in watertown, massachusetts. the end of a 28-hour lock down, essentially in the city of massachusetts. nobody knew for sure it was going to end this way, but they got him. boston police say they have taken their suspect into custody alive. they brought in an ambulance to transport him. he suffered a gunshot wound and lost blood. it was unclear how weakened he was. this followed the shootout last night. blocks from the neighborhood from the suspect's older brother was killed in a fire fight with police. this suspect taken into custody alive. remarkable ending, including the live shots right now. remarkable, including the reaction of people of greater boston and watertown specifically. remarkable ending to what has been an almost unbelievably tense week-long ordeal in boston and day-long ordeal involving the lock down. almost complete lock down of one of the largest cities in the united states. >> joining us live on the ground in watertown, massa
the doors locked and not open the door unless there is a uniform identified law enforcement officer on the other side of it. >> part of that process included controlled explosions. police say it was done merely out an abundance of caution. authorities hoping for some evidence as to dzhokhar's whereabouts. nbc news national investigative correspondent michael issakof is on the ground. >> we've been promised a briefing for several hours now that was going to give us an update on where things stood. clearly, it's a fluid situation. the last one we got just about an hour and a half ago was there have been some new leads authorities were pursuing. what that meant we do not know. clearly they do not have tsarnaev in custody right now. they still have very deep concerns about the threat he poses and the threat that others -- that an accomplice or accomplices may pose. and the most significant threat of all is the fact there might be ieds out there like the one found this morning that have been -- that have left on the streets of boston. making it very difficult, even if they get tsarnaev,
out, they had the night vision goggles, they -- that helps them, that gives the law enforcement an advantage. then they throw in the grenades. i'm not positive they did that. i'm just saying that is a likely thing they could have done then, because it wouldn't have hurt him. but it might give them yet another advantage to make him more confused and disoriented. maybe when they're sending in the robot. >> dick clark, item tell us how quickly they would move in to start talking to him. >> well, depends upon what the doctor's allow, frankly. if the doctors can patch him up and get him to where he could talk, then there's an issue of whether or not they have to mir r mirandize him. there are some circumstances under the law where they do not have to mirandize him right away if they think there's an imminent threat. they can ask him questions without giving him his rights. but i don't think at this point leit'sar there's threat. tell m the team they send in to talk to him. how many people send to go inniin i initially the. >> well, it's a small ground of people talking to him, but th
and thank you for your service overseas as well. we have just gotten this, a bulletin from law enforcement. people being asked to be on the lookout for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and a black sweatshirt, possible foreign national, accent unclear, what the accent of the individual is, but believes to have some sort of an accent. we are just getting that information. john king is working his sources now. he joins us with the latest on the investigation. john, what are you hearing? >> well, that bolo, shorthanded police lingo for be on the lookout, just issued. i will give you reporting from all of our cnn team. a little more on that bolo. law enforcement is looking for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack, possible foreign national because of an accent. the bolo notes to law enforcement officials says five minutes before the first explosion, this individual attempted to gain entry to a restricted area and when turned away, he broke eye contact and pulled his sweatshirt and hood over his head. no further info on him is what the bolo says. this is law e

team of law enforcement folks who have done this the right way, by building from facts up to a theory rather than from a theory out. >> governor, the "boston globe" says it all had this morning for boston -- edging toward not normal, but there is still a lot of concern. based on what you know, has the threat passed? >> i think we think so. there are a lot of leads that law enforcement is still pursuing, the fbi and the atf, the state police and local police as well. there are a lot of questions that all of us have and that law enforcement have yet to answer for us including questions directly to the suspect, but there isn't any basis for concern about another imminent threat. >> let me ask you some particulars about the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that h
explosive devices. found on or near the scene of the bombings today. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unexploded bombs for lack of a less specific but more politic term. as of tonight the official confirmation is that there were two devices. only two. those were the two that caused the massive explosions. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages, as potential bombs and done away with by law enforcement in the sometimes explosive way they do that. there are no suspects as of this evening. no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in now a young man today who is an eyewitness to what happened today. jared walker. he was eating with co-workers from ibm at a restaurant a football field's length of way when he heard the first explosion. thanks for being here. you're 100 yards away. what was it like watching? >>
treated at five area hospitals. law enforcement official told msnbc news one of the two known fatalities was an 8-year-old child. police say no suspect is in custody but many people are being questioned. the u.s. attorney's office in massachusetts is working together with the fbi, the atf and other federal, state and law enforcement officials on the investigation. msnbc news is reporting that 460 national guardsmen have arrived on site as well. a white house official tells msnbc news that, quote, any event with multiple explosive devices as this appears to be is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror. we'll talk more about what that means. early this evening, the president himself addressed the nation. >> we're continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it unfolds. i directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the united states as necessary and investigate that. we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusionings befos before
trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
that law enforcement is still pursuing, the fbi and the atf, the state police and local police as well. there are a lot of questions that all of us have and that law enforcement have yet to answer for us including questions direct directly to the suspect, but there isn't any basis for concern about another imminent threat. >> let me ask you some particulars about the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. appare apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that he is in serious condition, but he's stable. and there are investigators prepared to interview him when he's able to be interviewed. >> the question about him coming onto the radar of the fbi two years ago, he was interviewed, he was tracked at the request of the russians, according to federal officials. that's questions now, for you and authorities in
state, local and federal law enforcement officials on the investigation. and nbc news is reporting that 460 national guardsmen are on site as well. a white house official says any event with multiple explosive devices is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as such. we'll talk about that. and earlier this evening, the president himself addressed the nation. >> we're continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it unfolds. and i've directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the united states as necessary and investigate that. we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but, make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> the president saying we still do not know who did this or why and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all t
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
was there were ice's some runners who came across the finish line. >> pam: describe the law enforcement reaction as you're there on the scene. >> police officer had ran in the direction of where the explosion had occurred. of course they were yelling to make our way and clear the area. what officer yield about clearing. we were headed one way and all the law-enforcement officers were heading the other way >> pam: we know there was a tent set up to help runners as there were common across the finish line who may need some assistance and that that tends serve those who were injured by the explosion. >> i was farther upstream from that and it would have been further down from where the explosion was. i did not see that. and quite honestly, there was so much going on, i was not paying attention. i will try to find a way to get out because of all the barricades that had been put in place. we cannot get across the street. we cannot go from one side of the street to another. it was quite a mess. people were tearing down the barricades. >> pam: described the crowd there? this is not a source for profess
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
of that fight. how did he -- and law enforcement is doing a great job, but how is it that he got away? how far could he have gotten? >> well, he could be anywhere. they still -- the operative theory as far as everybody that we have heard as of midday today was that he was still here, or in the immediate boston area. but as one of your guest said, he's a local boy. he knows this area and knows where to hide and where to go. the hope is that they've got him, but he certainly isn't making himself known. and one of the things about keeping everybody inside is that if he does go outside, if he does try and get away, he would be pretty easily spotted. i mean, this is really -- it is like a ghost town with the exception of the military and an awful lot of media waiting here. the thinking is you would know him. this is where they chased him to and where they last had him. so it makes sense that there's a heavy search here. but as you know, the public transit, the amtrak trains, everything has shut down in this whole metropolitan area, and a lot of people are looking for him. >> and there's really only
a lot of questions in my mind and, as i say, more 30 the point of law in the minds of law enforcement as well. those are the kinds of leads that still have to be pursued and run to ground. >> is there anything on the videotape that maybe the public hasn't seen about his reaction that was particularly telling that moved the investigation along? >> well, the videotape is not something i've seen. it's been described to me in my briefing, but it does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. so pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly, as it was described to me. >> governor, as a former constituent department official, do you have a view of whether he should be part of the criminal justice system, as someone who is tried in court, or should he be treated as a terrorist, as an enemy combatant? that debate is only beginning now here in washington. >> well, that's the attorney general's call, and i have to respect
that would be you can see this scene to the different law-enforcement areas they are getting massive applause for their good work to keep the community safe. if mike is on the ground? >> i am here. the motion started to roll as the nnws came in that this was resolved. people crowded around a radio every time they heard a new nugget that the chair would go out and this conflict formed about three and a half blocks away from ground zero from franklin street where it went down down, it just formed up ad hoc. nobody called it people just guarded lining the road as it emerges vehicles came down one by one. different groups, a slot team, a tactical team team, generate a bigger response particularly they hit their sirens and one chance did god bless america you have a very emotional scene and people spontaneously expressing gratitude to the cops to put their lives on the wind. gerri: just taking this is in the appreciation of the community. large portion was told to stay in their home for longer periods of time then told they could leave that is when the defense started to unfold very quickly. , the
provided by the commentators, pundits and law professors who made it seem acceptable in the minds of the public in the wake of 9/11. that is why the after math of an event like boston, we have a duty to fight the darkest impulses in ourselves, in our fellow country men and women, to make clear to our leader that is we desire security and justice and the application of the rule of law. that there is no reason that our remarkably capable law enforcement officials and courts can't handle apprehending, trying and convicting the perpetrators of this slaughter and it is why i was so angered and disappointed when i saw david weigel report that susan collins said this today. what do we do once we capture the individual? how is he treated, if he's an american, then the constitutional protection pertain. if he is a foreign national, he should be held by a military tribunal and not read his mir randa rights. yes, susan collins, a voice of reason and bipartisan reason. telling reporters that if the person apprehended has beens to be a foreign national -- what a disgrace and what an insult to

[ male announcer ] now get 50% off brake pads and shoes at meineke. >>> we're going to get some expert analysis on several aspects of the capture of the suspected boston bomber. this is a former assistant director at the fbi and cnn and cyst and jeff is a security analyst worked for the fbi. these thermal images that we're looking at, the suspect before he was captured. i know what i see but as a law enforcement officer who is to bring this suspect into court and to talk about this, what do you see sna how does this
stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea
with law enforcement officers in north texas because he promised that he would not ever return to prison. 1 days later, back in kaufman, texas, mike mcclellen and his wife, cynthia, was sitting at home when their home was invaded by intruders. mike was shot 20 times and his wife, cynthia, was also murdered. assaulted, murdered in their own home. the district attorney, mike mcclellen, had vowed to bring the scum to justice who killed his colleague, mark hassey. three fallen law enforcement officers and one family member. and just yesterday, a woman in jail in texas is accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill assistant district attorney rob pryor and also injure the district attorney in montgomery county, texas, to mimic the kaufman county shootings. these attacks, mr. speaker, are attacks on the symbol of the rule of law in the united states. these attacks also hit home for me and others of us who have worked at the courthouse. i spent part of my life as a prosecutor and a judge in texas. bad guys come to the courthouse charged with everything from stealing to killing, and i, like many oth
, breaking news tonight on two fronts. late word from two federal law enforcement officials that there is an arrest in connection, as erin said, with the poison letters sent to the u.s. president and the u.s. senator. new developments as well in the bombing case to tell you about. and obviously, it has been a roller coaster day for people here, emotionally and in terms of the facts of the story, it is not over yet. a short time ago, the fbi, again, postponed a news briefing that was originally pushed back from the 5:00 hour. it was supposed to be then at the top of the 8:00 hour. we don't know why this has been pushed back. we hope to learn more throughout the hour. >>> first, though, we want to check in with joe johns, on the deadly poison letter arrest. joe, you have some news on the arrest. what are you hearing, what is the latest? >> reporter: anderson, this is an individual from tupelo, mississippi, we're told, the home state of senator roger wicker. actually, his hometown, as well. he's one of the people who got one of the mailings. we know of two suspicious letters, a
? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. another suspect is armed. may even have a suicide vest on. they have additional explosives. unfortunately, civilians will just get in the wake. that would be a terrible -- terrible tragedy if someone comes out of the door a think it is in the vicinity of where the suspect is and someone gets shot. very important that people stay and of the late, let law-enforcement do their job. get this person, apprehend them and start to figure out what else we need to worry about and then, obviously, go back to figure out what we missed, we should have known, what the connections are inside or outside of the country. dagen: can you give us any prospective? these two brothers had been in the u.s. for at least ten years coming year originally from chechnya to my coming here with roughly 2002-2003 based on reports. and then executing allegedly this bombing at the boston marathon. can you compare this to anything of this country has ever seen or face bef
of the -- i suppose as you imply, the good things of law enforcement, but the horror for the rest of us we have all seen this video because you are seeing it live, and then chris was saying at one point you wanted to say stop posting pictures of people with no limbs, and there's so much video record already, that you are right, it may help in a law enforcement sense, but we're all still absorbing -- the 8-year-old boy who was killed his father was running in the marathon. >> uh-huh, and he was waiting at the finish line. >> and the photos it would be whatever information people would have from before the explosions. maybe you have a picture of somebody putting something somewhere. that's what they are looking for now, video, or audio, or photographs that people may have taken not knowing they were taking the picture of something. there is going to be a news conference at 9:30 eastern, and we'll keep an eye on that. >> stephanie: my ex grew up partially in israel and it is interesting how they are trained to look for any of that for any kind of suspicious like you said
? >> reporter: well, we know that federal law enforcement officials are telling fox that they do have images, and videos that they have been scanning and carefully scrutinizing, and they do have, they are telling fox, video of a possible suspect placing at least one of the devices at the scene, and there is debate within the law enforcement community and within the fbi have whether or not to release that video to the public, a debate obviously over whether or not it will serve their purposes and the ultimate goal of catching the man or men responsible for this attack. so, we know that there is video, and there are images, that are a possible suspect, and the question now is when or if we'll ever see those images. jenna: we'll be back to you with more development as they come, rick. thank you so much. >> i don't know how many folks may still be trapped in rubble. they have not been able to give me much more on the damage, other than to say that there is a significant area around the fertilizer plant that has been destroyed. homes have been destroyed. there are homes flattened. part of that co
divided between authorities in boston. the fbi lead agency on this, right? >> the fbi. lead law enforcement agency. they are the ones that will coordinate the whole thing. what's fascinating there as well is you have robert mueller who pardon me has been on the job for several years. his term has been extended once and now he is done in a few months. this is going to be his last major investigation. he has already got one foot out the door. you have a completely new national security team here at the white house for the second term. john killing a at state. john brennan. and this whole new group of people around him, the president, who are being tested here very quickly. let's remember what we have been talking about and you have been talking about it on your show for weeks is about immigration reform and gun control and the budget and what is he going to do on the grand budget. all of a sudden that's on the back burner. >> bill: the terrorism thing becomes a major issue because this is the second time now we have been hit and 9/11, of course, being the first. the president basi
happened including american support for -- as a law enforcement and intelligence practitioner is inclusiveness in america. as a law enforcement tool, i worried all along when i was in the business that americans would start to say as a result of events like this that there are real americans and other americans. that kind of mentality if we ever get it will accelerate i think these cases of radicalization. kids like this when they take the oath will say i took the oath but i'm still not accepted. >> to what exstent one of the dangers here? one can overread too much. these may be two cases of a bad situation. to what extent might be assimilation machine in the u.s. be broken down or not functioning as well as it used to. in europe, minority communities were excluded marginalized but not in the united states. the polling data suggests that. but does this tell us maybe we should pay attention to that? >> compared to what? the assimilation mod until the united states works marvelously compared to france or germany or great britain. if you look back in history, the irish, the jews,
. there's a lot going on today. first, the latest out of boston. federal law enforcement officials say the bombs that killed three people and wounded at least 176 17 critically, at the finish line of monday's marathon were explosives made from pressure cookers filled with metal and ball bearings and carried in backpacks. the fbi and homeland security are circulating photos of the device remains to figure out where the components came from. no word yet on what may have triggered those blasts. and so far no clue as to who's responsible or why. security has been high at the funeral of margaret thatcher. the former british prime minister funeral being held today at st. paul's cathedral in london. more than 2,000 mourners representing at least 170 countries turned out to pay respects to before britain's first female prime minister known as the iron lady. queen elizabeth and her husband prince phillip attended along with henry kissinger dick cheney and former house speaker newt gingrich. thatcher suffered a stroke on april 8th and died at the age of 87. she will be cremated and buried privat
continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously, our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families, and the city of boston. we know that two explosions gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others including, an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why. whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. that's what we don't yet know. and clearly we're at the beginning of our investigation. it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice point we also know this. the american people refuse to
